Madge and hubby Guy Ritchie overtake Mick Jagger and Elton John - but they've got a bit to do to catch Macca...
MADONNA has stormed the latest ‘RICH LIST’ of rock stars in the UK – joining forces with husband GUY RITCHIE to debut as the sixth richest pop millionaires in the country.
The 13th annual Rich List, published by the Sunday Times newspaper this weekend (Apr 22) estimates the couple’s combined fortune at £180 million, overtaking the likes of Mick Jagger and Sir Elton John and making Victoria Beckham‘s £18 million look like peanuts.
Rich List stalwart Paul McCartney maintains top ranking with £713 million and appearing at number 36 in the overall list of Britain’s richest 1,000 people.
McCartney‘s fortune, which stood at £550 million last year, has been boosted by the release of the ‘1’ album last November, which sold 12 million copies, the launch of the Beatles Anthology book last October and the £138 million inheritance from late wife, Linda McCartney.
New entries to the music list this year include songwriter composer Tim Rice with £120 million and former Spice Girls manager, Simon Fuller who has amassed a fortune of £40 million.
